This would a great 4-season shelter. The main con is that it's just a little bit on the heavy side if you're a super-ultra light backpacker, but if you're going with people, I feel that you can justify the additional weight.

Pros

  • Prevents condensation
  • Versatile
  • Roomy

Cons

  • Lack of protection from bugs without nest or bivy inside
  • A bit heavy

Haven't used it in the plain tarp config yet. It's kind of heavy for that purpose anyway. But the floorless pyramid tarp is excellent. It sets up great with my Black Diamond Syncline trekking pole as the center. I used a Seek Outside 2-person nest inside and it fit quite well inside.

Tarps are cool and light.

Pros

  • Snow and wind resistance

Cons

  • Not a lot of people can sleep without a floor

Tarps are really versatile. This thing is cool for sure. It's a cone tent and a tarp all in one. It's light for what you get and cone tents have a ton of floor space (for two and gear, maybe a bike). Price is OK. I got it on sale.

Good in the wind but makes noise. In snow you can dig down below  and cover the sides with snow and it's legit. Can be pitched high off the ground like a canopy(you will need a long pole). Doesn't come with a pole.
